Swedish Massage

Swedish massage uses a system of long gliding strokes, kneading, friction, percussive, and shaking motions or vibration techniques on the more superficial layers of muscles. Swedish massage is intended to vibrate glands and organs as well as move lymph. This is considered to be one of the most popular types of massage.

It is primarily for full-body sessions and promotes general relaxation. It is effective for most ailments, because massaging the skin, the body’s largest organ, sets up a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation, and promotes health and well-being. Swedish massage also relieves muscle tension, reduces anxiety, strengthens the immune system, improves blood circulation, detoxifies, balances the nervous system, and facilitates states of deep relaxation that may open a door to the soul and spirit in the process.

Shiatsu Therapist Program

Shiatsu is an ancient healing art that uses finger pressure along meridien lines to help restore the bodies natural harmony and healing abilities. This session is traditionlly done fully clothed on a futon mat, but can be adapted to a table as well. Through the use of pressure, breathing, stretching and lifestyle suggestions, our goal is bring awareness and balance.

The method taught follows the tradition of Zen Shiatsu from the master Shizuto Masunaga, who was very interesterd in 5 element theory and psychodynamics of the energy meridiens.  Students will learn how to use various parts of their bodies in order to give pressure, including the elbows, knees and feet (barefoot shiatsu).
